Microsoft apologizes for late delivery of Nokia Lumia 1020 with $150 gift cards

The gift card does have some requirements. You can't use it at Tiffany's for example (not that $150 pays for anything but sales tax in that store) nor can you use it at IHOP for a late night dinner of chocolate chip pancakes. The card must be used at the Microsoft Store online.
One person who pre-ordered the Nokia Lumia 1020 on July 18th just heard from Microsoft that his handset will be shipped on August 1st which isn't too bad considering that there was no way of telling when his unit would be released. Hopefully that date will apply to a large number of those who are still short one Nokia Lumia 1020, but are $150 richer.

Is Nokia and Microsoft the same company? Why is MS the one apologizing? MS also gave gift cards when Nokia should be the one giving out.

No MS is the one who should be apologizing. The buyer purchased the 1020 from the Microsoft Store and because of that it makes Microsoft the responsible party for the delay since they received money from the buyer. Read the first sentence in the email. It says, "Thank you for ordering your Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone from Microsoft Store." The last two words are key.
